Misconception

Directed by Jessica Yu

Most of us perceive world population to be still growing at an alarming rate, with declining births in the developed world being offset by growing populations in the developing world. Are these claims of population explosion outdated scaremongering or do they still bear truth? Taking cues from the groundbreaking research of statistics guru, Hans Rosling, Misconception offers a fascinating glimpse at our world tackling population shifts. Academy award-winning director Jessica Yu humanizes macro population trends by exploring how top-down policy decisions by affect three individuals. Misconception takes on this highly-charged political territory delivering human insights into how we are ultimately all striving for the same goal.

Musical Guest 6:45pm – Craig Smith

Anthropology graduate Joanie Little is stuck working as a barista. Rather than let this get her down, she decides to make the most of her “underemployment”. So, much like Jane Goodall did with chimpanzees, this upbeat Miss studies her only available subjects: the customers of her coffee shop ‘jungle’… hilarity ensues! Created and developed by Toronto’s critically acclaimed solo performer, Rebecca Perry, Joanie Little brews up a storm that you won’t want to miss! Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl is the internationally successful show for anyone who has ever had a job they didn’t like.

“She’s got tons of charm, confidence and is totally bright on-stage
Perry is a ★★★★ performer” – Winnipeg Free Press

“Her comedic timing is spot on, her acting is superb as she slips in and out of characters, and her singing is pitch perfect. The description for the show says that’s it’s suitable for ages 9- 99 and I think that’s true.”
– Mooney on Theatre

“Our eyes and ears are locked into Perry’s performance” NYC Stage Buddy, New York City, NY

SEED: The Untold Story

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.
